How to use Wi-Fi with Reliance wireline Broadband?

This is definitely the most asked question on different broadband forums but still there is no universal solution to this problem because of the fact that Reliance still use the same old and crappy web login system foe connecting to internet. So this web login system is not compatible with two of the most popular modes that is PPPOE and Bridge mode in Wi-Fi routers.

The only mode that can work with Reliance broadband is Dynamic mode. It is also known as MER Dynamic mode. Most of the modern routers out there has this mode but some of the router don’t have this mode, so it will be difficult to use Reliance Broadband on such a router. Here are the steps on connecting Reliance Broadband:

  1. First buy a Dynamic mode based router. Most of the Asus router out there contains this mode. So i will recommend you to buy one of the Asus router.
  2. Most of the Asus router has an option for automatic setup but that will not work with Reliance. Automatic setup is mostly for PPPOE and Bridge modes.
  3. So set up your router in Dynamic or MER Dynamic mode. It is easy to setup router in this mode as router will provide you with this option at initial start-up.
  4. Once Dynamic mode setup is complete than enable DHCP option in configuration setting of your router.
  5. Now after this connect your devices to your new router.
  6. You will now be able to see Reliance Web Login page on all of your devices. Login at one of the devices.
  7. After login, you will be able to  use internet on all the connected devices via Wi-Fi.

Remember that Reliance wireline broadband will not work as Wi-Fi on All in One Routers that is those routers which contain both Wi-Fi router and Modem. So please don’t waste your money on this type as they are 2x costly than a normal router.
